GM Futurliner hoping to become world's most expensive car hauler
The result is a Futurliner cab with a a 29-foot bed surrounded by a clamshell rear end that encloses the loading ramps, laid over the chassis from a 1978 C.C.C. garbage truck and powered by an 855-cubic-inch, inline-six-cylinder Cummins diesel. The body has been modified with a tilt cab to make engine access easier and the package is supported all-round by air springs rated at 20,000 pounds. It's a four-seater inside, and with the installed air conditioning Boyjian says "It's noisier than it is hot." Other touches include 240-volt flood lights and a train horn.
Turning attention to his other projects, Boyajian is selling his Futurliner - Futurhauler? - for an asking price of $1.25 million. You'll find the listing and more photos at American Movie Trucks for a virtual tire-kicking. Act now and it could be yours, and there's only one of them in the whole galaxy...
